My 2yo daughter goes to long daycare three days a week, and seems to get sick a lot. It’s often a cough, which either turns into a bad cold and a chest infection, or just hangs around as a nasty cough for weeks on end (up to 8 weeks sometimes). She’ll often then have 1-2 weeks healthy, then its back to being sick again (meaning no sleep for any of us as she coughs and wakes through the night). She doesn’t have that much contact with other kids when she’s not at daycare, so I’m very sure she’s picking it all up from there. We take her to the doctor each time of course, sometimes she gets antibiotics, other times not, and she has a preventer inhaler that she takes every day. My questions are: do other kids get sick this often from daycare, and for this long? Has anyone got any nighttime remedies for coughs (dry and wet coughs – she gets both)? And has anyone tried moving their child from long daycare to family daycare (or some other care option) and noticed a difference in how often they get sick? We (and particularly me!) are to the end of coping! Thanks for your help. Do you have any tips for managing sickness from long daycare?
